DescriptionLotus is the national flower of India. No other plant figures so prominently in Asian religions as the Lotus. Unlike other members of water lily family, its large pink or white petaled flowers and leaf stalks rise above the water, sometimes for a considerable distance. The large, round leaves are covered with a network of microscopic hairs, which keep them dry in a rain. When the flower flower petals fall, they are replaced by a flat-topped seed pod divided into compartments, resembling a wasp's hive.
- Scarify the seeds
Lotus seeds have a hard outer shell that must be scarified or softened before planting. This can be done by gently rubbing the seeds with sandpaper or using a small file to create a small nick in the seed coat.
- Soak the seeds
Lotus seeds require water to germinate. Soak the scarified seeds in a bowl of warm water for 24-48 hours. Change the water every 12 hours to ensure that the seeds are getting enough oxygen.
- Prepare the soil
Lotus plants require a special type of soil that is rich in nutrients and has good drainage. Mix equal parts of loam, clay, and sand to create a suitable potting mix. Fill a shallow container or pond with the soil mixture.
- Plant the seeds
Place the soaked seeds in the soil mixture, making sure that they are spaced apart and buried 1-2 inches deep. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil and gently press down.
- Provide warmth
Lotus seeds require warmth to germinate. Place the container or pond in a warm and sunny location, such as a greenhouse or sunny windowsill. The ideal temperature for germination is between 75-85°F.
- Maintain water level
Lotus seeds require a constant water level during germination. Keep the soil moist by adding water to the container or pond as needed. The water level should be 1-2 inches above the soil surface.
- Provide light
Lotus plants require plenty of sunlight to grow and develop properly. Place the container or pond in a location that receives 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day. If growing indoors, use grow lights to provide adequate light.
- Fertilize regularly
Lotus plants require regular fertilization to grow and develop properly. Use a fertilizer that is high in nitrogen, such as a 20-10-10 or 16-6-12, and apply it every 4-6 weeks during the growing season.
Wait for growth
Lotus plants can take up to 2-3 weeks to germinate. Once the seedlings have emerged, continue to care for them by providing adequate water, light, and fertilization. As the plants grow, they will require larger containers or a larger pond to accommodate their size.
In conclusion, growing lotus from seeds at home is a rewarding and enjoyable process that requires patience and attention to detail. With proper care and attention, you can successfully grow lotus plants from seeds and enjoy the beauty and tranquility they bring to your water garden or pond.

The seeds stayed in water like stones for three weeks (not three days as stated above) and I threw them away. Cheaters
